Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop! Come join in on the fun!

Hello All!
It is the 13th of the month which means that it is time for another fun Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog hop!
If you came from Kerri's beautiful blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened onto the hop here, you will want to start back at the beginning at RRR design team blog.

I created a fun gift box for this hop.
I made a simple box and lid from some white cardstock, decorated it with designer papers, then added an image and sentiment. 
To give it that punch of a finishing touch, I used  some pretty Lime Green Leaves and some of the new Orange Jute String (from Really Reasonable Ribbon) tied through a big flower button.


The image I used is from the "Love Tweet Love" digi set that I designed for Clear Dollar Stamps.
It's available for instant download and it's just $3.00 for 3 images and 4 sentiments.
(I made up a different sentiment in MS Word for my sample today)


The designer paper is from Basic Grey's "Sugar Rush" stack. The button came from the fabric department @ Wal-mart.  ;)

Your next stop on the hop is Cheryl's SWEET blog.

Remember to leave a comment on all of the hop blogs for your chance to win a "September Ribbon of the Month" package!

Thanks so much for dropping by!
Hugs your way!
True :D
